Biography:

A former Australian Schoolboy, Matt Eisenhuth spent time at both the Parramatta Eels and Penrith Panthers early in his rugby league career before overcoming cancer in his leg in 2014. He joined Wests Tigers two years later as part of the club's Intrust Super Premiership side — working away on a part-time contract before stepping up as captain and then as part of the extended NRL squad in 2017.

The younger cousin of Sharks forward Paul Gallen, Eisenhuth would complete his heroic journey to the NRL in Round 15 of the 2017 season when he made his first-grade debut against the Sharks. He would go on to play in every game for the remainder of the season — averaging over 120 metres per game — and was named as a finalist in Wests Tigers Rookie of the Year Award that year.

After re-signing with the club early in the 2018 season, Eisenhuth featured prominently throughout the year for Wests Tigers — one of just three players to play every game in the season along with Luke Brooks and Esan Marsters.

2019 was another season of consistency from Eisenhuth, who played 21 games to move pass 50 NRL games, while also recording career highs in metres gained and tackles made.

Eisenhuth is signed through at Wests Tigers until the end of the 2020 season.
